The Samsung Galaxy Fold missed its release date in April due to screen issues. Since then, the company has not specified a new release date for the phone. Now the device would be ready to use.
Kim Seong-cheol, vice president of Samsung Display, said in a speech Tuesday that the Galaxy Fold was “ready for the market,” according to the Korea Herald.
The Galaxy Fold was originally scheduled to appear in April before being moved due to display issues. Since then, Huawei has also postponed the launch of its first foldable smartphone, the Mate X, to September.
The Galaxy Fold should pay tribute to Samsung’s ingenuity in terms of mobile innovation. But the phone’s display had several issues on arrival itself. In a few days, we saw foldable phones that looked a lot better than the Galaxy Fold, including its main rival, the Huawei Mate X, whose design is excellent.
Samsung has been working on the Fold for years and the competition is already amazing. And that’s before people get their hands on one of the two devices. So the disaster really happened. It turns out that the Samsung Fold offers unexpected design options leading to an almost immediate destruction of the screen. And the integrity of the screen has been our biggest concern for foldable phones.
